Ask your insurance provider today if your plan covers bariatric surgery, related tests and clinic visits. Additionally, you may meet with our financial counselor one-on-one to review payment options.

What People Are Saying

“Having bypass surgery has not only changed my life for the better, but has saved my life. I am now 6 months out from surgery, down 122 pounds that will be forever gone, and I am on two medications plus my vitamins. I am in a better place now then I have been in over 10 years. Dr. Edwards and his team have saved my life and I would do it again tomorrow it I knew it would keep me in health that I am now.”
